A faulty thermostat might not open, meaning coolant won't flow. With a stone cold engine, start it and let it idle. Sorry for not clarifying that!! The failure mileage was 85,000. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where it was diagnosed that the crankshaft position sensor a and crankshaft position sensor B needed to be replaced. It's a little tiny connection that requires taking practically everything out to get to.
It now has almost 241k and still running strong. The failure mileage was 77,000 and the current mileage was 83,000. Js08016 answered 2 years ago City93942, you are correct in that the head bolts pull out of the block on these engines. Don't give up on your car yet. Sooner or later they all blow!

Also northstars are known to leak oil. Feel the upper and lower radiator hoses. No people not all northstars just randomly blow their freakin head gaskets! Eventually, the thermostat will stay at a partially opened position where the cooling by the radiator just matches the necessary heat loss through the radiator. I assume that the cap on your coolant tank is holding pressure? But trust and believe that it is the gaskets. The fan was shutting off after about twenty minutes and the car started run badly , no compression etc. You have posted on this like 20 times saying head gasket! Failing water pumps are fairly common in the devilles. There is no leaks, no noise, No smoke and it still runs good and purrs like a kitten.
Eventually after all that nonsense my radiator blew up then shortly thereafter the water pump. Only do this where it is legal! Right away, the water in the engine falls below the opening temperature of the thermostat and it closes. If that is the case, then the engine most likely has a breached head gasket, or—more likely on that engine—a breached intake manifold gasket. It is a little harder without removing the engine but it will save you thousands of dollars. It will check for exhaust gasses being present in the cooling system. Make sure the impeller on the water pump spins. The information center would reset itself sometimes.
If a belt is loose or broken, it cannot maintain the proper speed, thus resulting in poor coolant flow and ultimately, engine overheating. Replaced and car is like new. The failure mileage was 135,000. More to come once the kit is installed and car driven extensively. Check the coolant level, hoses, and make sure coolant is in the radiator.

Who did your head gasket? When the engine is cold, the thermostat a valve in the hose where water exits the engine to go to the radiator is closed. When the thermostat gets stuck in the closed position, coolant stays in the engine and quickly becomes overheated, resulting in engine overheating. Then it may be that you have an air leak between the reservoir tank and the pump. This can be the reservoir tank itself, or one or more of the hoses that has become too stiff, and does not seal correctly. One symptom of a leaky head gasket is a rapid loss of coolant with no visible coolant leak underneath the vehicle.

The consumer would like for the vehicle to be included in the recall. Mar 25, 2014 Thanks for choosing FixYa Debra and welcome to FixYa. When the engine is running and heats ups, feel the heat of the top hose, if the hose isn't hot, the thermostat is most likely stuck open and needs replaced. I have changed the water pump thromostat, radiator cap and I know the fan is working. After that was replaced it was like a new car. The dealer replaced the instrument panel cluster. I am going to add some information, as I have been following the post.
Chrysler is superior with electrical problems and failures. The failure mileage was 101,000. If it is hot we know you have circulation. That in turn can push water out of the cooling system, and into the recovery reservoir, where it can't help with the cooling of the engine. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. You remove a small amount of coolant, and put the tool in the radiator, or pressure tank opening.
